I am a researcher in computational linguistics. After submitting my dissertation on the bootstrapped creation of lexica for sentiment polarity shifters in early 2019, I have now moved into the field of sign language research. As part of the DGS-Korpus project I develop computational methods for the analysis, automatic classification and assisted annotation of German Sign Language (DGS). I am also involved in work on data infrastructure for the project, such as updated releases of the DGS corpus, public documentation, and implementation of the FAIR principles.
Previously I have worked on sentiment analysis, metaphor recognition, and context integration in speech recognition.
I am also the developer of BibTexNanny, a tool that helps you keep your BibTeX bibliography clean and consistent, as well as create streamlined versions of it for individual documents.
